Yesenia has spent the last ten years focusing on community development. She has a B.S. in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico-Cayey and a J.D. from the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law. It was during her time in law school that she began her journey working with low to moderate income families in the District as a Student Attorney in the Community Development Clinic. She is excited to be a part of Solar United Neighbors of D.C., where she can combine her love of science and community development to help expand access to solar energy in the District. Having benefited from solar energy herself, she is passionate about assisting D.C. homeowners to make the transition to solar.

Anya Schoolman

Executive Director

Anya has worked for decades on environmental projects and policy up and down the Western Hemisphere. This work has helped her grapple with the issue of sustainable development and how to make complex issues relevant to the community. Solar United Neighbors got its start when her son Walter asked, “Mom, can we go solar?” In her role as Executive Director, Anya has been instrumental in the passage of landmark solar legislation and regulation. In April 2014, the White House selected Anya as one of 10 White House Champions of Change for Solar Deployment for her groundbreaking work to deploy solar in the National Capital Region.
